The guys over at TUAW have received a tip that the company that does television for Apple's live events and Macworld is apparently hiring for an unannounced Apple event at the end of February. Keep in mind that this is an unconfirmed rumor -- while TUAW trusts their source, job listings are not available on the video company's website, and Apple has not yet announced any events happening this month. But Apple did promise us a year flush with announcements, and starting with the new Mac Pros all the way up to the bigger iPhones and iPod touches last week, they haven't disappointed yet.

And what would the event be about? Considering that we've got our ultraportable already, and our HD Apple TV, what big news are we possibly hoping to hear in "the end of February"?

This is just a rumor, so don't get too excited yet. But if it is true, and if Apple is holding an event before the end of the month, get ready, baby. We just might be about to see the iPhone SDK.

It's probably not what people are expecting.

a big telling point will be whether or not the media receive their "special event" invitations.  these usually have some kind of theme to them, or a phrase such as Macworlds "there's something in the air", or last year's special event where the themed images were musical - indicating a new range of iPods. 

Going by their history though, we can expect at least 2 special events per year and two keynotes (Macworld and WWDC) - which is a good move by Apple to keep people interested in them (aside from their innovative products).

Personally - i'm hoping for a 10.5.2 update to Leopard, a firmware update to the Airport Express and Extreme, and an 802.11n Express!  And the inclusion of wireless time machine for Airport, effectively turning it into a time capsule.  Mind you I would only use it for the Macbook - i'll stick to SuperDuper for the iMac!

iPhone SDK. It won't be 10.5.2, that should be out tomorrow (people think...) and hopefully the MBP will be out on the 12th. So it's the SDK as apple said they were releasing it late feb.

We can only hope. I've been delaying updating to 10.5.1 on my MBP since 10.5.2 seems so close.
